with the jets. you couldn't ask for a more stunning backdrop, golden gate bridge and alcatraz. just the topography, the geography of the area is going to make for some challenges, and some of our maneuvers have to have slight adjustments. but it's going to make it that much more visually stunning when you see it. >> and kron4 will bring you the show live, sponsored by jeep. we'll have the sights and sounds. and you can just sit back and watch it all from the comfort of your home. blue angels live is saturday, october 6th, at 3:00 pm. one of the other big events happening in san francisco this weekend is the hardly strictly bluegrass festival! the festival is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people to the city over three days. charles clifford has details. >> reporter: this stage is constructed completely with our crew. sherry sternberg helped

everyone has a good time. >> take public transportation, bring layers, a lot of water, and try something new, try something you've never heard of, a band you've never experienced, just walk to another stage and see some music and meet somebody new. >> reporter: in san francisco, charles clifford, kron4. cooler weather is expected this weekend. we're going to see a mix of cloud cover and sunshine through the weekend as well. temperatures still in the 60s and 70s. tomorrow, same thing on saturday. a system hovering offshore starts to push into the bay area. temperatures tomorrow, in the 60s and 70s. 67 in sunnyvale, 77 in los gatos, 72? san jose. 70s for the inland valleys again for tomorrow afternoon. 76 in antioch, 73 in pleasanton and
